Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 5
AIRED:
Beau makes a joke about the new girl coming in, but takes a swipe at Amanda while he's at it. "Something crazy always happens," Toni says about the entrance of the new guest. To pass the time away before Kavita's arrival, the gang orchestrates a kissing contest. Toni mauls all the guys (except Dave, whom she only pecks). Charla pounces on Scott and makes out with Zack. Everyone else gets little butterfly kisses from her. Kristin takes control and straddles all the guys -- including Dave. Amy and Zack show some PDA that they've only saved for the bedroom. Alex comments that this should have happened on the first day. Amy and Toni pretend to kiss. Zack witnesses this and becomes angry. "Zack is a prideful person," Amy says as she runs after him. They argue on the stairs, and she attempts to explain that she really didn't do anything with Toni. As everyone else listens from the Grand Salon, Alex thinks the fight is about him because he's the only other boy Amy kissed in the game. "I'm the one who's in shape. I'm the better looking one," Zack says, comparing himself to Alex. "I'm the man!" Back at the room, Charla makes herself "completely available" to Scott while her roommate Dave sleeps alone. Scott, however, turns her down. "Get your hands off," he whispers. The rejected Charla complains. "Why does this always happen to me?" Scott assures her to trust his reasons, and he gets up to go to the bathroom. "You can't perform when you have to pee?" she asks. Later, Dave awakes to hear Charla crying. She is unsure how she is going to stay at the hotel. Dave has his own problems, wondering if he can get the new girl to pick him from among the hot guys. Charla brushes off the idea. "They're all Backstreet Boys," she says. Dave comes over to her bed to comfort her and she quickly shoos him away. His toes must have scared her off. Meanwhile, Zack and Amanda kiss and snuggle in their bed, as Beau and Amy sleep silently in the next bedroom. The next day, Amy questions what really happened between her friend Amanda and her "friend" Zack. She isn't sure of who hit on whom. Amy says that she is hurt, but Zack insists that nohing happened. Then Amy tells Amanda that Zack denied the whole thing. Amy still doesn't know who to believe, but she cares about Zack. She is ready to mistrust Amanda to take Zack's side. "I'm stuck between a rock and a hard stone," she sighs. Kavita arrives amid the chaos to the newly instated Paradise Hotel tradition: a toast from the current guests. Kavita's already formed some ideas about everyone. She is sure that Zack is self-conscious and likes flattery. How come Amy hasn't figured that out yet? Zack and Beau discuss their options with the new girl. Zack hopes that Kavita picks him as her roommate because he doesn't like the inconsistency of Amanda. Beau is rendered silent. (Hooray!) Later, Beau confronts buddy Alex about his budding closeness with Amanda. He is convinced that Alex flirts with Amanda even though he knows that she is only doing it to make Beau jealous. Alex counters back that Beau always complains that he doesn't really care for Amanda in "that way." When Alex starts to raise his voice, Beau tells him to talk like a man. This comment really sets Alex off. How dare he question his manhood! Amanda watches horrified as the fight escalates. Amanda cries to both Kavita and Toni that she is not playing games with Alex, and that she is only trying to make the two guys happy. (It seems Amy's way of making a guy happy isn't working out too well either.) As the argument continues in the Monkey Room, Amanda comes in to shower and listens from the bathroom. "I could care less about her!" Alex exclaims. "Tell me what you want, Beau, and I'll do it." Amanda chimes in that she is not flirting with either of them ever again. Alex storms out, and goes to Kristin and Scott to ask them for advice. They think Amanda is dividing his and Beau's friendship. They suggest he talk to her. Alex pulls Amanda aside later. Although she is still claiming that she and Beau are "just friends," she tells him that Beau only sees her flirting. He seems to ignore the fact that he hangs all over every other girl. Alex is annoyed that he has gotten sucked into this whole situation. "I'll blow the f*%$#ing roof off this place if it ever comes back to me again," he says. Beau becomes enraged when he sees Alex and Amanda talking. He corners Amanda in the men's bathroom, saying, "the drama's got to end." Yet Amanda tells him that he doesn't realize that it's a two-way street. Host Amanda gathers the group for Kavita's roommate selection. When Kavita picks Zack, Amy looks unhappy. She admits that she is a bit upset, but that she knows it's only a game. This shuffle puts Amanda into the single room. "I'm used to controversy by now," she laments. While Amanda packs up, Zack is silent because he doesn't want her to move. He must be thinking hard. "It sucks," he finally pronounces as he hugs her. Kavita senses that Zack is kind of bummed about her arrival in his room. However, his bummed out state doesn't last as the new roommates settle in for the night. The restless Kavita can't sleep. "Can you help me be tired?" she asks Zack suggestively, holding out her arm for him to rub. Zack takes the bait, and the two cuddle and make out. Feeling sleepy, Kavita turns over leaving Zack in the cold. The next evening, the group is invited to add questions for a game of Pandora's Box in the Harem Room. Beau asks Scott why he hasn't hooked up with anyone at the hotel. The abstinent Scott laughs. "Things might change," he says. Amy asks Dave if he and Charla have hooked up. When Dave says no, Alex questions what Dave's definition of "no" is. Dave says that they haven't had sex. They have kissed, but not in their own bedroom. Kavita is up, and she asks Charla why she talks badly about Dave but is nice to his face. Dave is alarmed by this, seeming to be the only one who doesn't know this fact. Charla answers that she doesn't like Dave touching her bare skin, but she will try to be more honest with him. Dave looks hurt. He's finally realized that he's been designated as the ugly guy. Back in their room, Dave asks Charla why she told everyone that she doesn't like him touching her shoulders. Outside, Zack and Beau giggle as they eavesdrop. Charla hears them, and Dave chases them away. Dave then opens his heart to Charla, explaining that he made an extra effort with her because he really liked her. He was embarrassed by what she said. "Nobody came to this show to find love," Charla bitchily responds. The next day, while playing paddle tennis, Scott asks Dave how things went with Charla. "We have some trust issues," Dave bemoans. Charla confides in Kavita that Dave was unhappy that she wasn't going to have sex with him. Kavita thinks he should be happy that he even slept in the same bed with a girl! But Charla says that she makes him sleep in a separate bed. At dinner, Zack tells Kavita that he is learning about people's flaws. Amy overhears this and overreacts. She cries to Toni, and Toni counsels her to leave Zack alone for the rest of the night because he is juggling his multitude of emotions. Zack's never had a girlfriend before and he can't show his feelings. "He doesn't know how to word it," Toni says. You can say that again, Toni! But just as Toni finishes advising her, Amy disobeys and goes right over to Zack to hug him. Zack shows no emotion, and Amy is fully dissed. "I don't get it," she says, walking away. Later, Amy has a one-on-one conversation with the he-man wordsmith. Zack tells her that she should have just said something about her feelings. Now she is making him out to be a bad guy. "No one asks me about my story and what I went through!" he exclaims. He then goes on to tell her that his mother dropped him off at a grocery store and left him there. He never had a female growing up to tell him what to do. He hides from things by working out. Zack wonders why Amy never asks him questions. Apparently, "what's wrong?" doesn't count. Yet, Amy, ever the lap dog, accepts his stories and apologizes. She gets on his lap and they hug. -paradiseonfox.commoreless
